I managed to hear only 15 minutes of show 14 because something going wrong down here.
Anyhow i heard Dirk Dashin and Ryzom mentioned which are closed source.

You have broken one of the 10 commandments of free software :wink:

Seriously why don't you just talk about open source games, there are plenty about.

Ryzoom we talked about because there was an attempt by some community members to buyout the game, and release it under the GPL. They managed to get 200,000 dollars of pledged cash (With FSF pledging 60,000 bucks), but at the bankruptcy auction (The company behind Ryzoom went bankrupt) somebody else put in a higher bid, and the free software community lost.

I can't speak for Dirk Dashin, that wasn't my segment, that was Dann's :lol:
